I'm also wondering how one would prove that the set of real numbers in base ten is identical to the set of real numbers in another base.

The reverse statement (there are not more natural than rational numbers) is trivial anyway.

Numbers do not have a base. You can express a real number in a specific base to write it down, but the number itself is independent of it.I'm also wondering how one would prove that the set of real numbers in base ten is identical to the set of real numbers in another base.
